Are you in the USB club or something?

Is it anything like the UPS club?

Wow, I certainly want one of those!

Edit: looks like it's a pretty expensive gift.

- usb charger for mouse with retractable cord
- usb 4 port hub
- usb gooseneck led light
- 128mb usb flash drive with wrist strap
- headset with retractable cord. has two plugs (one for mic and one for earbud) so it is for a computer, not a mobile phone.

shipping package is a small white box with multicolored polka dots - keep an eye out for it.

thanks google!

Are you an AdWords advertiser? If so, any indication of whether you're getting this for publishing or advertising?

This sounds like an expensive gift and probably only for the high earners like those in the "UPS club" or make $5,000 or more a month.

hmm, I'm about 4 hours away from them as well, but no shwag bag for me yet. FedEx guy already came this morning (although it was the express van, not the ground van).

I could do with a little minimouse and usb drive :)

yes... the google logo is on everything (except the mouse charger).

Are you an AdWords advertiser? If so, any indication of whether you're getting this for publishing or advertising?

yes, i also do some adwords advertising for a couple of my sites. the address on the box seems to exactly match my adsense address - my adwords address was entered a little differently (st vs. street etc)... so my best guess is that it is for adsense.

The last two years you didn't have to be in the UPS club to get the gift, although this gift seems more substantial than the gifts of previous years.

I got $20 adwords credit, but I think that was for being an advertiser. Seemed kind of wierd -- twenty bucks is twenty bucks, but compared to my spend it ain't much. Would have preferred some branded crap.

There's a pony standing in my front lawn and it appears to have a Google logo branded on it :)

I got a freak'n Google 2006 New Years card.

Personally, I'd rather have that dollar the card cost in my AdSense account and you can stick that card places I can only blog about.

Can't you just feel the spirit of Christmas in the room?

Personally, if I were in charge of the Google gift fund I'd give it to some truly needy people and not a bunch of ungrateful brats who feel like they're owed a gift.

Yeah, delete this if you must, I understand.

Since September's AS revenue drop, I'm one of those needy people (just in case you find yourself in charge of that gift fund ;-))

Who should I kill for that gift? :)
I would love it too.

"branded crap".

Santa Google, please, send it to meeeeeee.

DHL called today
Over here in the UK
And a little parcel gave
That some here do crave.

The mouse will be most use
Helping me be profuse
And if the headset matches the hype
I could start using Skype.

So thanks, Google Santa,
For sending this at a canter,
Even paying the import duty
On this little Google beauty.
